I have had a few pictures that got started, were done to a point and then just stoped. I still have a couple that I love what I have done on them so far but that have sat for years unfinished. I really want to finish them but no matter how much I try they just are not ready to be done yet.
This was one of those pictures. I started it, had an idea what I was doing, loved what was done so far but just could not go any further. Finally after 3 years or more of it being partly done I dug it out and finished it. I had most of the mountains and the sky with a dragon done but I had to redo the dragon totally as it just was not fitting the quality of the mountains. By this time I had NO idea what I had originally planed for the picture and had to figure out what I wanted to do with this. "Ice Dragon; Blue Flame" is the end result and I am very pleased with it. The subtleties of the colors in the mountains and flame as well as all the colors (most you just don't notice) in the Dragon is some of my best work. 16 x 20 on Canson board done in Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil and Prisma colors.
